I'm in such better spirits. We are a family who loves to get together for Memorial Weekend...and not just once. Today was our second cookout and tomorrow will be the third! In between, we visit graveyards and I like to antique a little. This scarf was in an antique store that I went to in Omaha. It has the state seal of Alaska.
I went with my sister and her two children (my nephew and niece Malcolm and Alex) to a very large graveyard to visit their paternal grandfather's grave. He died when my brother in law was 15. Long before any of us knew him.
They cleared the area, cleaned the stone, planted some ganzania. It was so sweet to see the care that Malcolm in particular took.
I took a picture of these because I want Jim to make a few of these for me (they'd have to be cheap, wouldn't they?) and I'll paint them red/blue/ white...affix them to our home somehow...for the summer.
